We have been having earthquakes all day too, they don't usually worry me but they are really strong ones and the hospital is on rubber things (nurse explained to me) which means the building is safe as could be but it sways horribly. It is disorientating me quite badly

They did an endoscopy on me today and I have to say that was the single most horrible procedure I have had to date. They kept me AWAKE DURING THE PROCEDURE. Yep, awake while they shoved a camera down my throat and into my stomach and small intestine (duedenum part). What happens then? Gag reflex of course. So throughout the entire half hour procedure I was gagging and vomiting and couldnt breathe even with the nasal prongs delivering oxygen. My whole body was shaking and I was screaming and crying unintentionally, I had no control whatsoever. Now I have an extremely sore throat and stomach and I want to smack the anaethetist who told me I wiuldnt feel a thing or even remember the procedure... I remember it very very well.

*huggles Holly* That's so horrible, I'm sorry you had to go through that. :( What a pathetic nurse, maybe you should perform an endoscopy on her?

I feel for you, I'm booked in for surgery on the 9th oct, to hopefully get my problems fixed :)
But I've been struggling with the same sort of things as you.

Really hope you start feeling better soon :)

They discharged me this morning, with NO ANSWERS and MORE PILLS. Basically they told me they don't know and can't do anything so to go home and take the pills as described... Well that doesn't help me does it -_-

Waiting for the results from a blood test by my GP, he was testing for pregnancy(AGAIN), liver function, Coeliac and something else, can't remember what it was.
Basically, if this test brings no answers, I may end up in a hospital an hour southeast from here demanding answers(they are less of a complete failure than my local hospital who may or may not have gotten their practice license off templates from the internet), or seeing a naturopath or a colour person or something, ANYTHING.

Anti-inflammatory drugs will cause horrible GI upset. It sounds like you have been given too many drugs.

I hope you feel better.

Yeah that's what I thought, my local hospital is useless, I haven't been taking the anti-inflammatories.

I'm only getting worse to be honest, this morning I had a drink of water, that was it, just water, and not long after I started feeling nauseous and getting cramps and bloating again... what the hell, it's water.

I'm back off to the doctors this afternoon, and also to see a colour therapist, so I'm really really hoping I might get closer to getting answers, cause I feel like utter crap.

My hair is all greasy and gross even though I washed it yesterday, not normal for me at all. My face is all dry and flaky, under my jawline looks like eczema and is really itchy as well. I also have two clusters of pimples, both on the side of my forehead, one on the left side one on the right side. I'm 18 and have never had pimples, ever, so why should I suddenly start getting them now, but only in those two spots. My hair is back off my face, and the rest of my face and hairline has no pimples at all.

I've also lost a further 5kg in the past 2 days

Well, been to the colour therapist, he told me a whooooole list of stuff, some that I knew already, some that I didn't know.
He told me that I have Lead, DDT(insecticide), and caffeine in my system. I knew about the lead, as I lived in a Lead painted house as a child and got lead poisoning from paint stripping.
He also said I am low in Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin D, Iron, and that my thyroid is playing up.
He said I also have sinus problems(yep), and anxiety(yep), and also agoraphobia(yep, I was diagnosed with that 2 years ago).
Then he said that I have nerve damage and bone damage, both of which I knew.
He also said that I have inflammation around my bowel, and both E.Coli and Staphylococcus in my system, where on earth.. Maybe from animals in vet clinic? I have no idea.

He also fixed my back, neck, shoulders, shoulder blades and headaches... NONE of which I told him about previously, but none of which have been sore today either.

I'm in a little less pain that I was, but I still feel like utter crap, I now weigh 70kg dripping wet, so that's now a loss of over 13kg, I don't know what I'll weigh when I'm completely dry, hair included.
I still can't eat, it's a huge struggle to even convince myself to eat anything, I've eaten nothing today and it's now 6pm. I just can't. I suppose because now eating is associated with pain, nausea and distress, I just can't do it and it sounds so stupid.
*So over this*

Blood results have come back... I'm not coeliac, my liver function is fine, I'm still not pregnant(surprise surprise, I did tell him that).

So both good news and bad news that everything is clear, but now we still don't know whats happening exactly. Although we also have an ever growing list of things that it isn't... Here's me trying to stay positive while i'm p****d off with the medical world and my own body for deciding now was a great time to throw this at me.
-Mum just offered me a mallowpuff and I turned it down..... I love mallowpuffs -_- but now I'm scared to eat anything at all.

Back in the hospital again so I guess we will see how they fob me off this time. Dad got a hold of the local health dept guy so we will see. But I can't even drink water now
